First up, a disclaimer: Sacred Citadel is not Sacred 3. If it was, the entire planet would be rent asunder by a volcanic eruption of enraged fans that’d spew out into the streets and converge on developer Southend Interactive’s offices. That’s because it’s a self-described “co-op side-scrolling brawler set in the world of Ancaria,” which is quite the far cry from the Sacred series Diablo-ish ARPG lineage. As a prelude to the in-development Sacred 3, then, it’s a bit of an odd choice. Honestly, though, it doesn’t look half-bad. Different? Sure. But I’m up for hacking and slashing from a side view as well as a top-down one. I am, in that respect, an incredibly versatile human being.
